as homeless, non-lethal devices that temporarily incompass taits that is false. when use as intended they cause pain and as we have seen across the nation they pose a risk of serious jury or death. >> as you have heard today, in particular people with mental health problem are more likely to be at high risk of death, and with that high population in san francisco and coming in contact often with the san francisco police department, we don't want to run a risk of that population being impacted. and the aclu is also concerned with the civil rights implications that the supervisors spoke of today. you know, across the nation and in san francisco, you will see the african american communities of color are impacted by accessive use of force that would lead us to believe that once they are instituted they would also be disproportionately used against the xhupts of color. because they are easy to use it will increase over use and officers will be use it as the first line rather than reverting to what they used in training such as verbal commands and we also have outlined many incidents of l

instances. with that being said, do i want to use weapons that are only about pain compliance or use a weapon system that is about controlling and stopping that person from doing any further aggressive behavior than what they are doing and our policy is if you look at the policy. it is not about using the policy against someone who is simply non-compliant. that would be a violation of the policy. it is about using potentially that weapon system against someone who is active, state of aggression towards the officers and or the public themselves. so, with that said, it is a weapon system that controls as opposed to uses pain as a means of acquiring compliance. >> i have a couple of follow ups, but i know that the chair has a question. >> actually this probably dove tails with his questions, but for all of us to really understand, could you explain how electronic controlled weapon, a taser works? >> it works by simply, capturing the electrical systems within your muscles and basically constricting your muscles. >> but mechanically, you fire something? >> there are two probes that
long they will colerate -- tolerate us on the porch talking but that is a key part and the education component in order to survey them and what they think is an important part of it, so we will be conducting our third city wide customer survey in early january to test this new premium price that we have established and as well as this and the pg&e green tariff option is available to them. we will use the results of the surveys then to redine the roll out of the program. it will help us make sure we anticipate the right number of -- right percentage of opt out across the city, and we will take that heat map i showed you with the green and that survey will modify the specifics of that heat map again because we will have better information once again about customer acceptance of the program and then that wraps up the first quarter and we will have enough information then to come to the public utilities commission and ask the public utilities commission in about february to adopted -- not to exceed rates. it's our projected rate that is behind that bill premium i showed you, and that

and their projects have on transit. the issue for me is not so much the substance of what's before us. i may very well agree with what we have before us. but the question is what is the best process to actually get to a change in what happens on this matter, specifically what happens to the nonprofito%(hyf exemption that we're talking about. and i really believe that the transportation sustainability program, theç$( ]5 tsp, is actuy the proper process that will allow for us to make these kinds of changes. let us remember that one of the things that is supposed top6jqsç happen under the tsp is to actually replace the transit impact development fee that we are voting on today. that is supposed to bepúph"t red by the stp. -- tsp. if we are to make the policy changes through the tsp process we need to make the substantive change on the tidf today. and so i also want to be clear that there may be some folks who are opposed to what supervisor wiener is proposing today because they may be oppose happening. and while i respect that view, i don't share that view. i do think that we need to revisit thes
francisco downtown parking board to finalize use agreement for the 5th and mission garage. i've been speaking the last several days with the city attorney's office and actually this afternoon with mr. roberts and mr. katari. we have a few remaining issues with respect to the lease termination. it is the expectation those remaining issues will be resolved and the language finalized no later than friday at 12 o'clock. i've discussed that with mr. katari. the staff recommendation as the board understands it is to approve the lease termination subject to the ability to ratify the language provided that it remains substantially similar to the agreement before the board and we agree with that recommendation. >> sir, thank you. anybody else care to address the board? if not, we need to do the amendment first as described. there is a motion to approve the amendment. is there a second >> second. >> discussion all in favor say aye. >> aye. >> opposed? okay.

of supporting our small businesses whose family used to run a restaurant. and like to invite to speak now supervisor carmen chu. (applause) >> thank you, everyone, for being here today. i want to thank the mayor so much for coming out and launching this pilot here on irving street. as you know, when i came on board in 2007, one of the most important things we wanted to relay was how important it was to not only support our downtown businesses, but also to support all the small businesses that are located across the city in our communities. for many of the folks who come down to irving street or noriega or taraval or jude a a lot of the times people who come here who own the shops are locales are debttionv . they are people who live in our communities who want to help make our neighborhoods thrive. in 2007 when we first came on board and subsequent years, one of the things that we noticed was that there were a number of different businesses that were being targeted with some of these drive-by lawsuits. many a times when i spoke to businesses, they did not know about the requirements that
. that the officers incident data is kept and analyzed not happened. that it force is used to the community review occurs, not happened. >> none of these would cost money and has been pointed out tasers would cost money if you talk about the training and the training on using the cart rages and all of this will cost significant resources. deescalation works. it works every day in san francisco. it works at psychiatric emergency service and social service agency and drop in center and door alley and west side and other places we did a comprehensive review of the tasers of the literature. >> please continue briefly to finish up. >> and we looked at all of the studies that had been done the last time that this came around. what we found over and over again is that the tasers increased fatalities. there were some that mentioned that it decreased. fatalities every one of those studies were funded by taser international. of the independent studies not funded by the people profiting off these weapons, they found things like the 2009 ucsf study that the deaths more than doubles in the first year and the f

this item but not the use of rainy day fund to support this program. thank you. >> president chiu: supervisor farrell. >> supervisor farrell: thanks, president chiu. thanks supervisor kim for bringing this forward. i don't think anyone here in the chambers disputes the need for this and you spoke well about it. i've always sped if you're going to spend dollars spend it on your kids education and i agree with that. i do have a question as well about the source of funding. in terms of rainy day funds not knowing before the school has anticipated budget surplus going into this year, pulling it from state reserves right now with a $15 million state reserve, i guess i would like to ask ms. howard, pulling it from state reserves, we have 15 million from state reserves right now budgeted, and we're going to take some money from that according to this amendment. question is, from your point of view, from the mayor's staff and from budget office, what are we anticipating for, you know, state cuts, that we haven't seen yet? if it's less than 15 million we should talk about it. if it's more
campos' leadership. so, with that let me ask supervisor campos to come and join us, please. >> all right. let me read it into the record. item 10.3, authorizing the director to accept and expend $6.7 million in fy 2013 transit sustainability project funding from the mtc, to be used for the free muni for low income youth program and the light rail vehicle rehabilitation project from the mtc to be used for the free muni for low-income youth program and the light rail vehicle rehabilitation project. >> supervisor, good afternoon. welcome. >> good afternoon, mr. president. , commissioners. thank you very much for giving me this opportunity to address you today. and if i may, i'd like to begin by asking all of the community members who are here to speak in support, to be here in support of free muni for low-income youth to please stand * so that you can see them. >> good work. >> thank you very much. thank you very much. you can sit. thank you. as you can see, there are many supporters here and the overflow room as well. and i also want to acknowledge the many youth and parents and community
on us. would you elaborate a little bit how what we're doing has been shaped to fit within the state law or on the other hand where is there jeopardy for us? >> so the notification and education program survey and early notification portions are the sort of the new pieces that aren't required by state law. we are using those outreach efforts, those outreach components to inform who we talk to in the actual statutory opt out phase. we are not suggesting that anyone who is going to be served by cleanpower sf would not receive an opt out notification. anyone who wishes to participate can participate which sounds like opting in, but we won't enroll them after we have included them in an opt out process. so i think we have worked with the city attorney o this to make sure we are accurately understanding our obligation and that our approach is consistent with it. we think it is. and so we're not always this careful with our language as we should be, but the actual steps will be anyone who says "let me in" will receive and be included in the opt out portion of the program. >> thank you. >

to address us, if you do just line up. >> at the concerned concern about the elevated parks, while san francisco does not have a compared park there is transforming and programming successful public spaces such as the square and the gardens. as a resident i make use of those spaces for the cleanliness, and safety and a pleasant place to be and i can imagine this elevated park i would go there too, if there were the similar types of experience. i suggest looking at both for their geographic connection to the transbay as well as for their clean, safe and welcoming space, they provide us all. thank you. >> thank you, mr. smith. is there any other public comment? >> seeing none, public comment is now closed. we can move on to our consent calendar. >> we will move into your special calendar. item 7 is a presentation of the transportation bay by architects. >> and it has been some years since we brought the design to you. and now that the towers approvals are now in place i thought that it would be appropriate for the board to hear an update from the architect of the transit tower fred clark
attendance. simply put it informs us how much funds we have to spend on animal care, conservation, education, facility support as we go through the fiscal year. the same is also true for members, supporting conservation and education programs. don't forget the donors. they restrict projects to certain projects and animals. the funds from attendance and membership that supports mainly the facility, thank you. with that, speaking of attendance, i'm going to go to the slide show here. we are thankful local groups help raise the awareness of the zoo. as i speak hockey players from the san francisco bulls are actually at the zoo this morning. they are passing out icy fish pucks to the bears and helping us kick off the winter programs. there is something appropriate about bulls visiting a zoo. part of our programming, santa's favorite have arrived. think of peppermint, bell, holly and velvet, to help teach the children about north america conservation. another thing we do is we delivered ten tons of snow for our polar bears. our polar bears are ulu and pica. i have a picture, there we go. there's
are also using two other properties along the way, for secondary access during the construction and we will in fact have the shaft excavate from and we will put in those shafts all of the vent equipment and structures at the top. and while we do own one of these properties it is different from the original documents where the intention was in fact a vent in the city streets which is what they used to do in the old days in new york and it is not acceptable any more. and the other property down on the corner of third and towns is in fact a new property. and it currently is owned by mcdonald's. we will also do one of two other minor pieces that were not fully covered in the previous document and really being out dated and one of those is the underground pedestrian tunnel which will now in fact we have decided to be a straight shot down beal street to embarcadero station and you can see where you are going. it would be underground, people-mover, with remarkable on either side. and we issued an rfp for this work in august of this year. we received a single proposal on september the 28th. br

so we need to benchmark as a city and need property owners to know what their energy use and patterns are within their own property. the second one is to encourage local renewable energy and dg distributed generation and don't need to build new transition needs and local security and keep the dollars in the local economy and to help with us there are a number of recommendations and they're tinkering around the edge of our regulatory process and rules but ultimately we want to work together to drive comprehensive energy policy to support renewables and continue to take the lead on streamlining the processes and working with neighboring jurisdictions to do that as well so we have a standard system bay area wide and include this for local renewals and work with pg&e and we have a robust electric grid downtown and precludes installing renewable energy there and work with the homeowners so they know the options and how to finance it -- >> chair campos. >> commissioner mab. >> can i ask danielle? can you say more about explore and fee and tariff for local renewables. >> sure. we will talk
sutros the palace at land's end with the sutro path area also that used to house the large indoor swimming pools and beloved sounding attractions like the mechanical museum. join me on december 4. if you want more information about historic neighborhood theaters and the theater foundation go to cinemasf.com and join me in supporting our theaters. join us on thursday in about 48 hours for clement time between arguello and funston. lots of great activities and a couple of food trucks will be out in front of green apple and foggy notion. join us for great food, music, free stuff, and a lot of fun. the rest i'll submit. >> clerk calvillo: thank you. president chiu. >> president chiu: thank you. colleagues, first of all i have two in memoriams for today. first i want to recognize the passing of a devoted officer on our san francisco police department, officer philip welsh. he graduated from st. ignatious and uc berkeley and served our city for 18 years. most recently he covered the beat in my district in north beach where he worked closely with our district residents and community memb
, be fiscally responsible. and so our preference is to move forward with the supplemental that would use rainy day and peef baseline funds. and not use any of the state supplemental reserve. none of the options we're talking about includes the rainy day. so would the mayor support or not support any of the three options that we are talking about right now, through the >> supervisor, jason elliott mayor's office, through the chair to supervisor campos. this has been an issue that's been debated and talked about for several weeks now. as the proposal involves fund sources of both and the conversation that budget director howard and deputy superintendent me young lee has been centered around using the rainy day reserve funds which are available, and on using a peef balance which has grown a bit in recent days. so combining those two sources, the rainy day money and peef money does actually total up to the amount requested. so your question to us, as i understand it, is what is the mayor's office preference on funding the supplemental. >> supervisor campos: no. my question would be what would the
. >> and normally when you use a tunnel boring machine at the end of the project, that tunnel boring machine comes out and it i guess goes onto another project somewhere to dig again? >> yes. typically these machines have a useful life. the particular machine that's being used to construct the central subway are brand-new machines. so, they have a significant -- quite a bit of useful life left in them. >> all right, thank you. >> other members of the board? mr. reiskin? >> yes, i guess i want to add a bit more context and explanation and perhaps offer that, since we've been working very closely with supervisor chiu, justin true from his office may want to add a few words prior to public comment. but the supervisor is presenting over at a board meeting at the moment. first, i want to clarify that -- and i think this was a little bit perhaps misconstrued in some of the media reports. what we're not talking about is recommending an extension to north beach or not, or voting on a station to north beach for north beach or not. the current approved project that has, that has been fully designed, that ha
the assurance to the community members and to us that you wouldn't have put it on here for option 4 if you didn't think it was at least, you know, well within the realm of possibility. and, so, two questions. would it help us, would it help you in your political and other efforts if we were to change the whereas clause that sort of suggests all of the approvals and funding have to be obtained by february 1st to essentially say they all had to be lined up or, you know, presumed to be feasible by february 1st, number one? and number two, would it help you if, as one of our valued constituents said, that we really change the resolution to say we're directing you to make option 4 happen to the extent you can? or do you really read it that way right now? >> to the latter, that's what i read and i read it as a direction from the board to make 4 happen. >> good. >> in terms of modifying the whereas to speak to the spirit of having everything lined up such that we know that, say, option 4 is certain as opposed to every last approval in place, i'm fine with that. >> well, i think -- and i'm glad you sai
to bodies that look at our land use from that perspective, so i would like to support mr. steen in this position and would like to motion that. >> okay, so there is a motion to move forward on mr. steen to the board for this seat on the market-octavia citizen's advicery committee. i just want to say a couple of things. i was one of the members had brought up concerns about insuring that we had a low income perspective in the market-octavia citizens advisory committee. i want to really appreciate mr. wolff for really spending the additional time to do some work and some research around some of the issues that impact our lower income communities and appreciate the time you spent with me to sit down and talk about some of these issues and i think they are much more fleshed out and i understand your perspective a lot better. do you really think that your work is focused around small business development and i think that perspective is incredibly important for this plan, but i think in terms of what the seat is being called for, i think that mr. steen more strongly represents that
to check it out and have an audit done before these people go sit anywhere and let us have a meeting for me to come back and you can tell me what has happened. thank you very much. >> thank you, dr. jackson. >> good afternoon, commissioners, i mean supervisors, eric brooks representing san francisco green party and the local grass roots organization of our city. i'm not going to get up here to oppose any candidates because it's clear at least four of these candidates are profoundly impressive in their qualifications for this type of work. but there is a problem and that is with public process. it's vital to remember that the reason we made sure that some of us fought so hard to make sure that neighborhood representatives were on this commission is that that is right of pa process of appointing them was supposed to entail going to those neighborhoods in depth and getting their input on who these appointees should be. for this to be noticed a few days ago at holiday time is very problematic to that process. just to show an example of why this is so important and why we need to wait until th
, and it will be the most happily used muni line. that's the rational for this project. no question it's expensive. it's worth it if people use it. it's worth it if they stay out of the automobile. it's worth it if it aids in creating space on our bus lines so it's a very important project. i am here to help in my way which is as an appropriator in the senate. jackie has helped in her way. nancy has helped in her way as a leader of a great political party in washington, so mr. secretary everybody that is here we thank you for our responsiveness. it's just great to welcome you here and go giants. [applause] >> mateo county supervisor to both houses of our california state legislature since 2008 and she has been in congress for jobs and our environment and she been such a great champion of public transportation that even cal train named a loco motor after jackie spear. please welcome congress woman jackie spear. >> thank you mr. mayor. thank you secretary lahood. thank you to the incredible leadership, senator feinstein, nancy pelosi and mayor lee and the board of supervisors to chairman nol an f
what the most expeditious way for us to have a process for a formal selection of an executive officer would be, and that if it is possible the preference would be that we pursue option two and still allow for a selection process, and maybe it is as mr. fried is saying that's not possible, but one possibility might be there is an acting appointment that happens. i don't know that we know enough to know for sure that that is not a possibility. i think that between now and the time that we have our next meeting that we can come back to the commission with a more detailed recommendation that says this is the most expeditious way to have a process. i think that would be the way they would approach it. my preference is that we find -- i do think that there are -- you know, i can go different ways, but i think one of the benefits for having a process whoever is selected if it's somebody already there it adds a level of credibility and mandate to that individual. if we go down that route it's my hope that mr. fried would apply for that and given his experience and what he has done i thin
. something that i think is important to add, is that many of our clients come to us you know, they have been in these relationships that are abusive for some time. and many times we are one of the last calls out that they make. and they lean on the support of family, friends and in a lot of cases, people that are in their workplace for some support, some options. and someone to lean on, unfortunately is what we have heard is that many times the response is that they were greeted with were not productive or posive. and i think that it is important to add that we believe that people have the best of intentions, they want to help people get out of abusive relationships or at least support them with some options. but they, if we don't give the community the tools to do so, workplaces, the tools to do so, and we can't really expect that great of an impact. and it can't all be done by community-based organizations. it is a huge. and we thank you for your support and leadership on this issue. if there are know other members who would like to comment. we can close the comment. >> supervisor olague?
beach station, which is something that we very much support. option number 4 gives us the best of all possible worlds. it eliminates on-street disruption while at the same time providing a staging ground not only to take out this [speaker not understood], but another tunnel boring machine for fisherman's wharf and also for the construction of the station. so, we very strongly support option number 4. >> thank you, sir. next speaker, please. >> lorenzo petroni, claudine chang and [speaker not understood]. >>> hello, i lived in north beach for 55 years. north beach is going through very challenging situation right now. there are people hanging on their businesslike this. i'm not against the project, but what i'm against is [speaker not understood] in north beach. we don't need to do the extraction in north beach. let's leave like they do in new york the machine on the ground, and then you reuse it later on. you don't have to do anything. you do that, everything will be cool. [laughter] >>> do you understand what i mean? north beach, lot of the little business in north beach are going to
will put that off, make sure it is properly posted. with that let us proceed. >> just a reminder to everyone. if you can please turn off any electronic sounding devices. on public comment. general public is item number four. it is again item number 12. so general public comment. you can comment on any items on calendar, but if it is not on calendar we ask you comment under those items. each person will have three minutes under public comment. we ask in order to allow ample time for all there is not a conversation going back and forth. to have your public comment and the commission can ask to answer questions afterwards. with that we are on item 2, the president's report. >> thank you. there are a couple items i want to announce and go over. one, we have had a couple ground breakings and completed projects. i want to congratulate the staff. go out and see a first-class facility. they restored a clubhouse and to make sure it got properly treated. we had a great ground breaking of the boedecker park in the tenderloin. i want to thank the commissioner that. is a true public partners
sfgtv for their work broadcasting this meeting, and madam clerk if you could chair with us your announcements. >> please make sure to silence all electronic devices. speaker cards and any documents should be submitted to the clerk. >> okay. do you want to call the roll? you call the roll on puc. >> yes. >> president torres. >> here. >> commissioner. >> here. >> commissioner moran commissioner caen and cortni are both excused from today's meeting. >> okay. that serves as items one and two. let's call our hird item. >> third item opening remarks and expectations for the joint meeting. >> okay. actually let's just call -- let's just call items four and five along with that and we can have our opening remarks that will cover all these items. >> item four is general update on the cleanpower sf. item five is discussion on the san francisco public utilities commission and for the education plans for the choice aggregation and cleanpower sf program. >> okay. very good. colleagues it's a really as president torres as said it's a momentous occasion, historic occasion we had. we im
vote last meeting, it was no, absolutely not. that's north beach, that's us. the chinese community said no. so, thank you very much. you make your decision better than the one they do. >> next speaker, please. >> kathleen dody, maria [speaker not understood], and [speaker not understood]. >> good afternoon. >>> hi, kathleen dooley. i'm here speaking today as a representative from the north beach business association and chinatown cdc. we have written a joint letter that i'd like to read to you today in support of option 4. the chinatown community development center is a proud long-time supporter of the central subway. with the north beach business association, we endorse the concept of an extension to north beach and fisherman's wharf. we support director reiskin's proposal to study extraction of the tunnel boring machine at the pagoda theater with an alternative of behring the tbm under columbus avenue. we also support the mta's efforts to plan for a station at the pagoda theater and additional stations to and from fisherman's wharf. this will create a north-south connection that serve
support for the 5 commissioner appointees here before us. so we have a motion and a second and we can move forward these items. >> one thing i wanted to add. >> i'm sorry, supervisor afl loels. >> you just reminded me in your comments and i think it's important for some concurrence from members of this committee about public input. there were some members who came here who spoke for public comment and thought there were parts of the community that weren't necessarily consulted, this project is moving a little too fast. i listened to it but i also feel like the disappointed candidates today but it speaks to the need to make sure we are hearing the community voice and reaching out for the community voice and the folks who are going to be on this commission, i think you have a duty to do that. i consider that to be one of the main parts of your function as a commissioner. >> thank you. so we do have items 2 through 6 that we will move forward to the full board and we have a motion to do that ease as a committee report. >> item 7, hearing to consider appointing one member term --. >>
use issues as well. in particular housing and again while i understand that this cac doesn't formally get involved until permits are filed, one of my real priorities in this seat is affordable housing and rental options, in particular given how much of a safety net that they are in the city and as a homelessness prevention measure right now. i think it's important to address the fact that many of the developers in the upper market area have been able to fee out of the inclusionary zoning requirements, which is an important tool as we work to create economically diverse communities within this project area. access to clean safe public open space is something that every resident in this area deserves and every effort needs to be made to prioritize open space preservation and creation. low income populations in particular are more likely to be victims of pedestrian-vehicle accidents so making intersections safer, particularly along upper market, is a priority of mine as well. so, too, are creating pathways in the form of service and support for better life outcomes for existing resident
to me, jim, none of us know what we're doing. but let me say we were fortunate enough to have mara marsalis on the other side of the table. i was there as executive officer of the san mateo (inaudible) you should have seen what it was to build with the san mateo building trades because they didn't understand what it was to provide community benefits. she understands it, she supports it, i think you are very fortunate to have her, the city will. i know she is the type of person that will provide us all of the time commitments that are needed on these commissions because that's the hardest thing for folks when they accept these commissions is the time. thank you, supervisors, have a great afternoon. >> hi, madam president, my name is rod sahad, commissioners, supervisors. my name is rad sahad, i am president of the asian commission. i am here to pay my respects to leroy king, i have known him and i've got in front of him so i first of all want to do that. secondly i want to say that not just the other community but asian indian community also supports commissioner king to be reap
to be on the board and he got us nonprofit status. well, then he started talking about pedestrian safety which of course i'm concerned about, but to the point that there were times i thought, oh, my god, i hope he gets on to a committee that he can work with so that i don't have to hear about it every day. and that's one of my recommendations for mr. bloomberg to be on -- but actually he really is concerned and he has pointed out lots of dangerous intersections and so forth. so i recommend him to the committee. thank you. >> thank you for being here and also thank you for sharing your story. is there any other public comment on this item? seeing none, public comment is closed. mr. bloomberg, i want to again thank you for your patience and sitting through this rules committee meeting. certainly excited to be able to support you to be a member of psac i think it's also, i did not note this before but it's also important that we represent our seniors that live in the south of market and we have many seniors that live in the south of market and i think it's important that that perspective is

on the track work thats was done at eureka curve, not only is it a new way for us to deliver projects in terms of using our own work force, but it's a training opportunity to stretch the skills and once again prove that we have some terrific crafts men and workers here. so, i'm sorry to go long, but thank you. >> thank you, john, very much. >> yeah, thank you. i think while we're on the topic, i want to -- we've had a rough couple of days here in the muni system. i think i just want to kind of do a quick recap on yesterday. i think john explained what would happen. it may have been related to some of the storms we had which were quite unusual saturday night into sunday. it did cause -- we lost the subway from about 6:00 p.m. yesterday evening for the rest of the night. but thanks to the work of the crews all night long, got it up and running in time for morning rush hour. that older legacy system that underlies the atcs is scheduled for replacement. you have already approved the project and the funding for it. so, it's another investment in the upgrade of the system that will lead to improved
from the task force and use that to move forward on recommendations that we should take forward and timelines of those and more economics on it and the task force didn't delve into that area and some are no or low cost but others like caa have large potential costs to the city and we didn't do that analysis. >> there is financial considerations. there is political considerations, and so if we have a document -- if we go to the next lafco meeting in january -- whenever it is. we will see the schedule later. it might be too quick to do that in a month and a different resolution for that, but i think that si process that is essential that we go to and provide a road map. >> and the last page in the report and lists the recommendations and near term, mid-term or long-term so the next two to three or three to seven or longer term so we started that work but certainly a lot more to do. >> i also have a question on the emphasis on pg&e and i am wondering if you could talk more about that. i am curious why there is equal treatment of clean power sf and pg&e since you have a program wi
use that isn't sustainable so whether it's clean power sf or the ideas from germany and free berg i am proud to you part of that conversation and vote for it on the board level and one thing i regret not being part of the municipal bank conversation and i think that will be interesting and from a nerdy perspective. it's not exciting to most people -- or at least i hope it isn't. >> commissioner schmeltzer. >>i hope you come talk to us about it anyway. >> yeah. >> i do believe that for me that the vote on community choice aggregation was one of the most important votes that i cast as a member of the board of supervisors. i think in the scheme of thing what is is happening with the environmental needs of our city, country, world, that that's one of the most important votes and i think history will show that would not have happened without your involvement so i think it's very, very exciting and i'm very proud of you, and what is amazing about supervisor olague when it comes to these kinds of issues she's always gotten it. it's never been difficult. it was an easy sell, so thank you ve
are telling us to give us something in good faith and we are now saying something whereas there is a trust issue here and so do we want to go in and give you that trust to 3:30? that is the big debate right now. >> all right. is there any other questions? >> okay, why don't you have a seat. >> thank you. >> i am opening the floor, please, thank you, sir. push >> good evening, commissioners, i'm officer mike tores representing captain garity. >> we recommend approval for this application from 2:00 a.m. to 3:00 a.m. with the conditions that you just mentioned earlier. and i would like to read some of the calls for service that we have had for the last two years briefly so you kind of have an idea of what has been doing on at this location. the first one is, this is february 16, 2011, and this was at 2:00 a.m.. and i will read you the cad briefly. inside of naan-n-curry restaurant. a concern about an agent x. let's see. it says, that she is disoriented, took her into the restaurant and bought some items and she has been acting weird. this was february the 16th, 2011. this is march the 25th, 2
:00 and recommend approval. with five proposed conditions which are attached in your packet. >> commissioner tell us a little bit about your business operation. >> good evening, my name is robbie, acting general manager for naan-n-curry. and actually, it took a little time to put together a presentation to just kind of tell you about what naan-n-curry is. it comes to a lot of surprise, but this restaurant has been at this location for approximately 9-plus years now and going on a decade as you can see. we serve indian and pakistani cuisine. one of the things that makes this restaurant important to the local community is that it serves the food which is kosher and vagan and vegetarian and which is some what of an odd where you know which places have this type of service out there and it has been doing that for over close to ten years, at this location and i think that the following two years prior to that at a different location in the area. we have actually unbenounsed to the ownership, they were not needing the fact that they needed to extend the hours, at one point, this restaurant has operated as
